    This coolhandluke has no failure to communicate! Her racquet indeed does not have the head shape of the Extreme, looks like an Instinct or perhaps Head pro stock.

    Greg Raven posted her specs a few years back from Indian Wells so all credit to him :)

    At that time, her PT219.2 Extreme had a static weight of 336g with a 33.4cm balance and a 353 SW.

    It had a custom layup that yielded a flex around 62 as opposed to 68 for the stock version.

    Sounds like a sweet stick.

    It is not a LM Instinct. It is a Extreme MOLD. It is a PT219.2 Extreme. It has a much softer layup than a retail Extreme.

    This what a LM Insticnt looks like with Extreme cosmetics.

    Notice the LM ridges and different bumper guard........................

    Have you ever hit with a pt219, sounds like it would have a great feel. i always thought the Extremes felt much softer than the RA would suggest.

    I had a hit with one of the Extremes. I think the code was 219.14. It was surprisingly super comfortable but with to much power for me.
